A Lovely Day | My Creative Scrapbook

I have another layout to share that I made with the April main kit from My Creative Scrapbook. I just love the colors in this months kit, so bright and springy, and as you can see, it all works perfectly with old black and white photos too.
It's my mom and grandma in the picture. My parents had bought their first home, and my mom had taken my grandma by to see how things were coming along as it was being built. What a great photo for our family history album!
I added in a few extra clouds that I punched out of cardstock, sprinkled some confetti here and there, and used the wording on the patterned paper as part of my title.
 
Oh, and how very cool is this layout that Ashli Oliver made using this layout I did a few years back as her inspiration. That's the very, very best thing about scrapbooking, the inspiration we get from each other!
 
As always, thanks for stopping by!

This is a spectacular page! Those colors are a wonderful match with the B&W photo and the punch of color from the confetti and the die cut clouds really pulls it all together. I really love this!!
